Next time you go to your favorite manicurist have her file your nails into a more oval shape, creating a soft curve at the tip. Next, instead of going for the typical white trim over pink base, pair a dark color with a brighter shade—wine base with lemon trim, chocolate with powder blue, navy with gold. Have your manicurist apply the trim so that it follows the deep curve of your newly shaped nail, not straight across like a traditional french mani. Get the Midas touch and try gold french manis this fall.
